Ho-Ho-Kus September 9, 2009 THE VILLADOM TIMES III • Page 3 Work session rescheduled to meet contract deadline by Jennifer Crusco The Ho-Ho-Kus Council’s work session, ordinarily held the third Thursday of each month, has been moved to Tuesday, Sept. 8 at 8 p.m. to allow the governing body the opportunity to award the contract for Phases I and II of the Sheridan Avenue streetscape project. Ho-Ho-Kus Borough Administrator Donald Cirulli explained that the contract must be awarded within 10 days of the opening of the bids. This week’s meeting date will allow the council to meet that deadline. Seven contractors responded to the borough’s call for bids. Those contractors and their bids include: Conquest Industries, LLC, $524,796; Jogi Construction, Inc., $614,094; Clean Up, Inc., $649,388; D.R. Mullen, $672,825; Zuccaro & Sons, Inc., $674,921;Berto Construction, Inc., $692,674; and Fredco Landscaping, $720,792. Plans for the renovation of the Ho-HoKus Business District as drawn up by Borough Engineer David Hals, indicate that the streetscape will be completed in three phases. Plans call for the installation of paver sidewalks designed in a basket-weave pattern, paver insets in the crosswalks, and the installation of additional Victorianstyle street lights. Phase I includes Sheridan Avenue, and Phase II includes Orvil Court and portions of Sycamore Avenue. Phase III will include Warren Avenue and part of Sycamore. Hals has also marked several sections of the downtown slated for future improvements. Those areas include Maple Avenue, North Franklin Turnpike, East Franklin Turnpike, and a portion of Warren Avenue. The borough has already received two grants of $150,000 each to cover the cost of these improvements. A third grant of $150,000, which would bring the total funding to $450,000, has been requested. The borough previously received a $55,000 matching grant from Bergen County to be used for improvements at the Ho-Ho-Kus Town Green. Ho-Ho-Kus Mayor Thomas Randall has cautioned that the money provided in these grants must be used expeditiously. ����������������������������������������������� Christine from Waldwick Memorial ceremony planned The Borough of Ho-Ho-Kus will hold a Sept. 11 Memorial Ceremony on the front lawn of the borough hall at the Sept. 11 monument at 8:50 a.m. on Friday, Sept. 11.
